SCREAM FACTORY GIVES HAMMER HORROR FANS A DEFINITIVE BLU-RAY RELEASE OF DON SHARP'S CLASSIC VAMPIRE FILM!
While I already own Universal's 8-film HAMMER HORROR COLLECTION on Blu-ray (which contains KISS OF THE VAMPIRE), I have to admit that Scream Factory's Collector's Edition re-releases of the Hammer films contained in that set have become extremely tempting. With multiple bonus features, new HD transfers, and Mark Maddox's fantastic artwork on their covers, I find myself glancing at those new Hammer Blu-rays more and more frequently - it's only a matter of time before I finally cave and start adding them to my collection.
Speaking of which, Scream's new KISS OF THE VAMPIRE Blu-ray is out of this world! Featuring a new 2K scan of the film (which is featured in two different aspect ratios), new and archival extras, and an alternate TV edit of the movie, this is definitely a must-have release. I mean damn.... look at that cover art! It's just plain gorgeous!
Synopsis: Lost on the way to their honeymoon, a young couple stumbles upon a mysterious family of vampires and their unspeakably evil leader. When a wrong turn leaves newlyweds Marianne and Gerald Harcourt stranded in a remote Bavarian forest, they have no choice but to accept the hospitality of the hypnotic Dr. Ravna, distinguished lord of a nearby castle. Ravna uses his "children" to lure the newlyweds to his lair, and soon they are plunged into a nightmare of horror and deception from which there may be no escape. Their only hope is Professor Zimmer, who calls upon an ancient ritual in a desperate attempt to destroy the vampires and free Marianne from Ravna's power
